About

This non-profit making Trust has been set up with the following aims:

  • To help to bridge the gulf of misunderstanding that seems too often to exist between those who think predominantly in verbal terms and those who think in predominantly visual-spatial terms.
  •  
  • To draw attention to the high creative potential of the many visually-dominant dyslexic minds.
  •  
  • To encourage, instigate, and engage in research into the cause and nature of this connection between dyslexia and good visual-spatial faculties which can lead to exceptional ability and achievement in the arts and sciences (most noticeably, perhaps, in the visual arts).
  •  
  • To provide an advisory service for all those concerned with the above questions, most particularly in the field of education. The Trust also offers practical help to students and adults in their training and careers.
  •  
  • To persuade more people wherever they live in the world to appreciate the importance of visual-spatial thinking in every creative activity (in the visual arts and other areas as well), and to use their own visual-spatial thinking capacity more effectively. This ability to think in visual terms is a valuable specific attribute of the human brain which we all possess to a greater or lesser extent according to our individual genetic make-up. We want to encourage everyone to recognize and develop it both for their own practical purposes and enjoyment, and also for the greater understanding of the world we live in and of our relationship to it, so that new ways towards solving the many problems that face us all may be found.
